Directions:
Preheat oven to 450. Measure four into sifter with baking powder and salt added. Sift once in large bowl. Cut in Crisco with hand blender or 2 knives until it is in small lumps. Combine buttermilk and soda; add to dry ingredients. Blend milk in with fork until all dry ingredients are moistened (dough will leave sides of bowl). Knead gently on lightly floured board, not more than 10 or 12 strokes. I do not cut my biscuits - I pinch off a small amount of dough and roll smooth in my hands. Place on greased sheet but not touching if you want nice brown, tender biscuits. Bake at 450 for 8 to 10 minutes. For tender biscuits always handle dough gently and use as little extra flour as possible.
